Friday, October 16, 2020

Don’t risk it. Flu shots save lives! Last year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated more than 410,000 flu hospitalizations and more than 24,000 deaths in the United States during the flu season. Flu vaccination is the best protection we have in fighting and controlling seasonal influenza.

Flu shots are more important than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic as symptoms are very similar. Both COVID-19 and flu can lead to severe illness and death. COVID-19 prevention strategies, such as wearing a face covering, washing hands frequently and practicing physical distancing are also effective against the spread of flu.
